Rider’s Spirits from Ratalaika Games and Shinyuden is an old-school racing release from back in the day that has now made its way to PlayStation 5. The game was originally released way back in 1994 in Japan as Bike Daisuki! Hashiriya Kon – Rider’s Spirits for the Super Famicom – that would be the Japanese version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment. It’s now 2024, and it’s finally made its way to other PlayStation and other consoles.

The controls are easy to understand. You’ll steer your bike with the left analog stick or the D-Pad as you accelerate with the X button and brake as needed with the Square button. You can use a turbo boost with the Circle button as long as you have enough energy. The L1 and R1 buttons can be used to lean left or right, which can be useful when taking a turn. The L2 button will use your current item. You can change items by pressing the Triangle button. Since you need to keep an eye out for your opponents, you can switch to a rearview by pressing in on the right analog stick. Oh, and if you end up making a mistake, you can rewind time by pressing in on the left analog stick!

The game has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy waiting for you. And since this one is a Cross-Buy title from Ratalaika Games, if you own a PlayStation 5, you’ll be able to download the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost, and each one will have its own trophy list. The list is split into 2 Bronze trophies, 10 Silver trophies, and 8 Gold trophies. What will you need to do for that Platinum trophy? You’ll have to complete Doinaka Track, Tokyo City, Susuki Plant, Cocoa Dirt, and Tamago Dome in the Prospect Circuit, complete Shizuka Track, Letroit City, Kawazaki Plant, and Okomoni Dirt, and Fufugu Dome in the Rookie Circuit, complete Monaca Track, Tiny City, Yamaba Plant, Senberg Dirt, and Nargo Dome in the Rider Circuit, and complete Damia Track, Paras City, Honta Plant, Caramel Dirt, and Supau Dome in the Captain Circuit.

Rider’s Spirits is an old-school racing release from back in the day that has now made its way to PS5. It was originally launched in 1994 and remained as a Japan exclusive up until now. Due to its nature, it might be a bit challenging for some gamers out there, but you should be able to give it a go thanks to its rewind feature, which you can use to undo any mistakes made along the way. Rider’s Spirits is available as a Cross-Buy title, so your $5.99 purchase will allow you to download both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
